What is everyone's opinion on Glacier Water?

Yeah, I was afraid of that.
I am thinking Glacier Water is better than tap water. Does anyone else in here buy this product?

Well, "REAL" glacial water, or most commonly called Glacial milk is great, it is white in color, and is extremely pure and has tons of minerals, anything else I don't buy.
I just use our artesian well water, which is better than any bottled water out there.
So, in answer to the OP, I think it's just all hype. Dansani water is full of sulfates, and made by Coka Cola company.
And some of the plastic that this water come in is highly toxic too.

Yeah, I was thinking it wasn't all that. Seemed to be a lot of people in the health food store using it. I just thought I would investigate and get everyone's feedback.

Anyone care to share their opinion about VOSS?
I don't know anything about VOSS, but I just wanted to point out that most bottled waters are simply filtered tap water, some with added salts or, as RP pointed out, sulfates (eek!). I prefer to drink either filtered tap water from my own tap (much cheaper than paying someone else to do the filtering) or true mineral water in glass bottles. I think most of the bottled water hype is just that...hype.
Edited to add: Our water is not fluorinated, so that is not a concern for us, though it may be for others.

I was excited, because when I saw glacier water I automatically though of the Hunza Tribe that drank the 'glacial milk'.
As far as commercial bottled water, I would really stay away from it and put the extra money into making the water in your home top quality, etc.

Yeah, I have both municipal water as well as my own private well. I really do like VOSS though and they sell it at the health food store. It is artesian water from Norway. Here is some information from a website about it.
Voss Still Artesian water is from a glacial fed aquifer in the wilderness of southern Norway. The Voss bottle is a sleek cylinder that is beautiful to see and touch. Known for its low mineral content, Voss is recommended to accompany fine wines and food and is the closest thing to pure H2O on the planet. A sip of Voss is like drinking fresh air.
I really do enjoy it. I was hoping there was atleast one other person on this forum who drinks VOSS.

I have had VOSS about 5x and thought it was wonderful. I don't know what to believe in reading labels anymore, so I can't comment on it's pureness or nutritive value. It is delicious, alas, too expensive for me to drink full time. :(

I get the small 375ml bottles of VOSS for $1.69 which is not bad. I drink about 4 or 5 a day sometimes. However, I also use them to make my lemonade, so that I can have "RAW VOSS LEMONADE". I just put the pitcher in the freezer to chill it.

Those containers from VOSS are neat. What do you do with them when they're empty?

jenna rose, if you lived close by, I would be happy to give them to you. I don't do anything with them. I would if I could scrub the "VOSS" logo off the bottle. If the logo doesn't bother you, they would make great bottles for holding lemonade, herbal tea, juices, etc..
